Mini LancerHokie was invited to an 80s themed birthday party today. I am the lucky parent who gets to stay at the party with her. Everyone is supposed to be in 80s fashion. She is going to wear her brightest/most colorful t-shirt, jeans or shorts, jellies, a side ponytail with teased bangs, purple eye shadow, and lots of accessories. I am doing a Guns N Roses t-shirt, ripped jeans, flat tennis shoes, side ponytail, and accessories. I have been exposing her to some 80s music and showing her pics from the 80s. This party got me thinking what is everybody's favorite 80s stuff---memories, food, tv, movies, music, etc.?
Here is my list (in no particular order):
Food: Pudding pops, Rainbow Brite cake
T.V.: Cosby Show, Fat Albert, Muppet Babies, Pee-Wee's Playhouse, Garfield, Sesame Street, Voltron, He-Man, Fraggle Rock
Toys: Rainbow Brite, Rainbow Brite Kitchen, Strawberry Shortcake, Barbie, Hot Wheels, Big Wheel, Lego, Etch-A-Sketch, Voltron, Popples
Movies: Land Before Time, Little Mermaid, Dirty Dancin,
Music: Bon Jovi, Alabama, New Kids on the Block, Greatful Dead Touch of Grey, Old Time Rock and Roll
Memories: Popples lunchbox, Rainbow Brite birthday cake, MTV actually playing music,Starting Kindergarten, Reading 163 books in First Grade
These are the things that popped into my head off the bat....
Favorite 80s things... And Go!
